    The rushing of the river? headed away from? back past?

    The rushing of the river increased Robbie's thirst. He cried a bit more as he changed direction and headed away from the bridge, back past the place where Krystal was hidden.

    1. The rushing of the river? headed away from? back past?

    2. What does the sentence mean?

    Re: The rushing of the river? headed away from? back past?

    If a river is rushing, it simply means that it is flowing very fast.
    "To head away from" = to move in the opposite direction
    "Back past" - returning to an earlier position and then beyond that position.

    The fact that the river was moving very quickly made Robbie very thirsty. He cried a little bit more as he changed direction and moved in the opposite direction from where the bridge was. He went back the way he had come and he passed the place where Krystal was hidden.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
